Lung InstituteLung Institute has announced the opening of a new clinic located in Scottsdale, Arizona this February, according to a press release. The new facility will become the institute’s third center to open in the United States that is focused on treatments using stem cells, joining a center in Tampa and in Nashville. The decision to inaugurate a new facility is based on the positive outcomes reported by both patients and local communities in both Tampa and Nashville.

With the main mission of offering lung disease patients effective treatment for their conditions instead of just addressing the symptoms, the institute aims to improve the quality of life of their patients through the application of novel technologies. The innovative approaches in which the institute actions are based are also combined with advanced stem cell treatments, which are expected to offer world-class health care to the patients who come from all over the world.

The worldwide recognized physician and expert in regenerative medicine Burton Feinerman, medical director of the Lung Institute, has been leading the Institute in conducting hundreds of minimally invasive, outpatient stem cell treatments in patients with a series of debilitating lung diseases, including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), pulmonary fibrosis, chronic bronchitis, emphysema, and interstitial lung disease.

“We are very excited to join the vibrant Scottsdale community and provide even greater access to convenient care for our patients,” said the executive vice president of the Lung Institute, Lynne Flaherty. “Through stem cell therapy, we hope to offer patients an alternative method to treat their lung disease while enjoying an exceptional local environment.”

The establishment of the new treatment center in Scottsdale will not only provide another location for patients to resort to, but will also increase the number of jobs in the medical, sales and administrative fields. In addition, the local businesses and medical tourism industry may also feel the impacts of having the new center, since there is a large amount of patients who travel to seek therapy. Therefore, the Lung Institute also offers a series of plans to promote the local activities for patients to enjoy when recovering from the lung treatment.

The Lung Institute will host a ribbon cutting ceremony to officially inaugurate the new facility with the medical professionals, the institute’s corporate team, community representatives, and members of the Scottsdale and Phoenix Chambers of Commerce in attendance. The center is located at 8377 East Hartford Drive in Scottsdale, and will be open doors on February 9, 2015.
